    So i was just downloading some wallpapers on my new Droid X and one of them had some security issues and in order to download the app i had to unlock some security feature that allows downloads from anywhere not just the android market....i checked some box that said allow any or something along those lines (dont really remember) but now i am trying to change it back so it only allows downloads from android market ......does anyone know what im talking about and can help me figure out how to get that security back on my phone?? thanks

    I wouldn't bother changing it back. It's nice to have the ability to load apps on your phone.

    But if you want to, it's Settings > Applications, the uncheck Unknown Sources.

    I guess you kinda answered my other ? too but just wondering if I do leave it checked is my phone at a risk to getting spyware and/or virus's and stuff like that ??

    No, the phone will always ask before installing APK files. You could install a dangerous APK file this way, but it would still require you to make the conscious choice to press the install button.

    also if you dont have this checked you can't install apps from the Amazon android market which has some really nice free apps of the day at times.
